Boko Haram Cut Off Maiduguri From Power grid by Blue3k2: 3:30pm On Jan 20
Chineme Okafor in Abuja

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) yesterday disclosed that Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State has been cut off from electricity supply from the national grid.

TCN in a statement from its General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs. Ndidi Mbah explained that supply to Maiduguri and its environs were cut off because the insurgent group, Boko Haram damaged a number of its transmission facilities thereby preventing it from supplying electricity to the area.

“The Transmission Company of Nigeria hereby informs the public that Maiduguri and its environs have been cut off from the national grid since January 17, 2020, due to damages to TCN’s equipment by insurgents.

“The incident affected the 330kV transmission line between Maiduguri and Damaturu. Also, the Damboa – Maiduguri 132kV transmission line has equally been disconnected from the grid for sometime, for the same reason,” said Mbah in the statement.

The TCN stated that it had located the fault on the Maiduguri – Damaturu line and had arranged to repair the line, adding that bulk electricity supply would be restored to Maiduguri on or before today.


“TCN pledges to continue to work to ensure bulk electricity transmission and grid expansion nationwide. The company wishes to use this opportunity to commend the Nigeria Armed Forces for their continued support especially in areas prone to insecurity. TCN regrets inconveniences caused by this problem to electricity consumers in the affected areas,” she added.

The enemy is getting better at picking soft targets to attack.

PSA: I'm leaving the definition of soft targets since alot of ignorant people keep asking. The difference between soft and hard targets is highlighted below.

Buhari doesn't seem too bothered about this Boko festering sore.

Just like he wasn't bothered when his Fulani kinsmen were murdering the ethnicities of Benue state in an ethnic cleansing of epic proportions.

Shame on Muhammadu Buhari.

Shame on the APC and PDP

Shame.

Very good at that...and for a state that is almost as big as southwest, defending soft spots is very difficult.

So name the hardspots the military has been defending then ? The military is obviously not on an offensive in the north east but just doing escort service and sometimes repel attacks ..what is the militarys overall game plan in the north east

I don't see anything wrong in that...

When a new force takes over power, they have to stabilise the place and assert their influence.

Boko haram is only trying to define her administrative line and chart new way forward.

I believe the new president have better plans on how to give the people of borno state light.


Let's watch.
